Last week was E3 2019, and Nintendo were not shy showing off a ton of content for two high profile games they are working on with KOEI Tecmo. Two games were shown in particular, both titles releasing this July. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order and Fire Emblem: Three Houses, that got new trailers and Nintendo Treehouse Live got knee deep in both of the games’ mechanics.
You can view all of the Nintendo Treehouse Live gameplay below:
It’s safe to say both games are looking like a whole lot of fun, and there is not long to wait for them either!
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order releases July 19th while Fire Emblem: Three Houses launches July 26th, both exclusive to Nintendo Switch.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT has been going on quite strong since it’s release back at the start of 2018, with a rough launch that has lead to a consistent online competitive community.

On June 25th Square-Enix and Team Ninja will be announcing another DLC character arriving as purchasable content. There will be a broadcast happening to commemorate the announcement, which you can watch below here:

During Nintendo’s E3 2019 Direct yesterday, they showed off some new features to upcoming collaboration with Team Ninja Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. Along with showing some cool gameplay segments, some story cutscenes and other flashy stuff you come to expect from Team Ninja, at the end an Expansion Pass was announced for the title.
The Expansion Pass though looks to be in a very similar vein to how Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors treated theirs. A modest fee for three big content packs, in this case focusing on Marvel Knights, X-Men and Fantastic Four.
Below you can read what the Expansion Pass contents will include:
Expand your adventure and roster of playable characters in the Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order game with the paid Expansion Pass, which grants access to three exclusive DLC packs that will become available as they release one at a time after the game’s launch and will not be available for individual purchase.
DLC packs will contain new content such as playable characters, modes, and additional story.
Includes content from popular franchises, like the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Marvel Knights.
First DLC pack will be available in Fall 2019.
Purchasers of the Expansion Pass to receive an in-game alternative-color chef outfit for Deadpool at game launch..
The DLC itself will start to roll out this Fall with it’s first pack; Marvel Knights. You can check out the full trailer from the Nintendo Direct below:

KOEI Tecmo and Team Ninja have announced their first two DLC fighters that are coming to Dead or Alive 6 via it’s Season Pass #1. We knew that Mai Shiranui was going to be one of them but until now we only knew the second was also from the same King of Fighters series.
Now it has been announced that the second fighter is Kula Diamond, and they both will be going on sale next week on June 18th worldwide! If you want to see them both in action check out the reveal trailer below:

Arriving last week on the Japanese eShop, you can now download the “Basic Edition” of the game, which gives you full reign of the 14 day holiday, but only with Kasumi. You can purchase more characters through the eShop much like the Dead or Alive Core Fighters free to play series allows.
Don’t have a Japanese Switch? Then fret not because you can access it in English on whatever region your Nintendo Switch is from. All you have to do is make sure you have a separate Nintendo profile set up and attach a My Nintendo account with the location of Japan. Then when you boot the eShop up with this profile you’ll be brought into the Japanese eShop. When there you can download the DOAX3 Scarlet Basic Edition. Once it is all downloaded you can boot the game up with your regular profile and it will auto launch with English translation (still voiced in Japanese).
So if you have been curious by the still blocked Western release of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, you can now jump in and give it a go!
Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 Scarlet is out now on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan. Only the Nintendo Switch has the Basic Edition, and is also uncensored compared to the PS4 version. The title will take up 4.4GB of your SD card.
